Wherry Hathor On View – cancelled

    Hathor, the beautiful Egyptian-themed pleasure wherry built in 1905, will once again be moored at How Hill Staithe this summer. For much of this time she will be open for free viewing. Please contact Wherry Yacht Charter www.wherryyachtcharter.org with enquiries.

    She will hopefully be arriving at the end of June… fingers crossed for the resumption of normality by then!
